Max Greenfield, will you come to shul with us? Read More

By / October 16, 2013

On Tuesday night’s episode of New Girl, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) tries to redeem his recent bad behavior. After his concurrent relationships with Cece (Hannah Simone) and Elizabeth (Merritt Wever) come to a dramatic end, Schmidt works on himself, trying to prove to everyone around him that he’s a good person. He even saves a man’s life who was eating while riding a bike (badass). Schmidt successfully performs the Heimlich maneuver and as the biker rolls around on the ground grunting, Schmidt recites the most boastful, most wonderful Shema you’ll ever hear.

Watch the episode on Fox or Hulu and let us know what you think.
